    Unfortunately the amp is not mine. Sounds great through my Princeton and my Champ though. I am very pleased. Everything I hoped for. Everything.

    This guitar is my favorite. The honeymoon period is over . . . this is true love. The finish, setup, craftsmanship, wood choice, everything is perfect. The more I play it the more satisfied with this purchase I am. Thing is: it sounds great even when unplugged. Really has great sustain that is noticeable without an amp. The Fralin bridge pickup has that classic tele tone and just sounds refined to my ears. Twangy but not harsh. The P90 (also Fralin) has a much warmer tone that sounds great by itself, very jazzy sounding (think Wes Montgomery playing a jazz-box), but when combined with the bridge PU creates a very distinct sound. This combo (when played together: p90/bridge) adds high end to cut some of the bass of the p90 by itself, but very unique tone in a good way. Can't think of anything to compare it to. Simple classic controls make it very easy to dial in a great sound (somewhat obviously) . . . I usually keep the tone knob all the way up and just adjust the volume to suit the situation. Feels perfect in my hands . . . I feel more confident playing this guitar, it just fits and feels like an extension of my body. I was nervous investing in a custom guitar that I can not play before committing to, but this build exceeded my expectation and the builder was great to work with. I have nothing to gain (financially or otherwise) by endorsing this builder, and I just feel like good work should be rewarded with positive feedback, and I am a very happy customer. Playing this guitar I am much less interested in pedals. I just want to hear the tone of the guitar played through tubes. Sounds great on my 5F1, modified 68 Custom Princeton Reverb, and Blues Deluxe. Unfortunately the amp pictured is not mine. Jeff says it's getting buried with him. He's a fanatic (in the way you'd want him to be) and it shows in his work.

    I've never played one with a P-90 in the neck. How does that sound?

    Check out post #26 above. I go into some detail there about the P90 neck pickup.
